BHS Durham ran a well supported XC Schooling day in April, kindly hosted by The Swinburn’s at Hedley West, which raised over £600. They are in the process of planning a Pleasure Ride in September - once finalised details will be posted on the website and Facebook Page.
BHS Northumberland have also been very active. A successful lecture demo, with Show Judge Pat Dorman, at the BHS Approved Benridge Riding Centre, saw lots of tips from Pat and questions from the audience.
This was followed by a Have a Go at Dressage Competition at the BHS Appproved Kirkley Hall College, attracting many first timers looking for practice opportunities – around £500 was raised between the two events, a welcome addition to County funds.
